but I don't see why (with propagated usage-requirements) we have too
long command lines (due to unnecessary include paths). If you don't want
to propagate the include path (and thus you have a source-dependency,
not a header-dependency), then make the '<include>some_path' a
requirement instead of a usage-requirement.
